jgl and I were going over this some time ago...along with Arb, for sentimental reasons I very much like the one from 4-5, but Feb thru Apr 69 gives you a handful of very nice ones, incl one from the Fillmore nights...some have a few glitches, albeit natural ones (Bob saying "I didn't do it your honor" loudly enough to disrupt the song, or a false start, or a cord shorting in the background), but in general it works really well and is so amazing a segue to have considered doing it is...is...well, I guess only something our boys would do.

I've always liked 2/27/69 & 3/1/69 better than the 5th. Jerry's voice was highly emotional in these versions of MOTM with TC's swirly keyboards in perfect balance. This really was the end of the early era of their youthful exuberance. It's hard to believe how much they changed in such a short period of time by the end of 1969.

I think you have a point there...it is a bit of what surfaces during the acoustic sets of 1970...it is defn part of the reason I find such a strong pull with the early era. I just don't get this vibe post 71 or so...defn didn't work for me with the 1980 acoustic sets, eg.

Thanx for the heads up on the Avalon shows, I agree w/ you concerning the small minor inconsistanacies @ the Electric Factory 69-04-15, but Bob and Phil didn't seem to lose thier groove for long. The segue though WOW .
Did Jerry play pedal or lap steel on that DS or was it just good old Mother strat ? Once Jerry gets me close to orbit like that I'm past the point of caring how he is presenting the music just take higher, and here jeery doesn't disappiont here.
I enjoyed the Dr. Flashback review for this show and couldn't agree more.
Ok I'm back at this seamless flawless transition agian Amazing. Sounds like it could either lap or standard.

hey Hippie,

thanks for the mention of 4/5/69 review. I must admit my personal fave for MOTM>Dark Star is 3/1/69, although they may pause a few seconds in between???
Be careful in the 1969 Zone, you may never come back !!

Dr. Flashback :-)
PS - if you liked the 4/15 Electric shows, check out the late Feb Dream Bowl shows. Both have been remastered by the Owen Bros.

Hey Doc--it's so nice to see you hereabouts early this fine morning. Suppose you know we all wish you'd grace us--this strange collection of Forumites--a bit more often.

Just wanted you to know your input is always appreciated.

Thanks Tell, nice to hear from you. As the forum seems to have returned to a reasonable level of sanity, and is refocused on the band called the Grateful Dead - I may post again now and then.
I've been busy archiving all the 80's shows from 1980 thru 1989 in lossless, for my "Golden Years" of listening. Hopefully, if the medium holds out and keeps the data in good shape. Of course, right in the middle of my project, Charlie Miller starts remastering 1982, 1984, 1987,1989 shows, which means I had to go back and DL many of the damn shows twice in order to have the latest version. Ahhh, what madness this business is !!
And since it's like making fudge - if you're DLing the shows you just can't help but not sample them!! So I've been lost in the 80's for the past year. Doing some top tens reviews and such.
Now lately, when I go back and pull out a 1969, 1972 or 1974 show, which I haven't heard for forever, it absolutely blows my mind as to the contrast in playing and energy.
Yeah, those classics' reputation is well deserved.

Always enjoy your posts when I'm lurking around.

Cheers,
Dr. Flashback
